Protect your small electronics and cash while on the water! The E-Merse Waterproof Padded Dry Wallet from Seattle Sports offers maximum, submersible, waterproof protection for your small electronics – up to 10 feet when properly closed. Neck lanyard included.

AirKayaks Paddlers Foam Seat

2)  AirKayaks Foam Paddler Seat Pad – $14.95.
The AirKayaks Paddler Seat features a soft, 1-inch thick foam cushion for greater comfort during longer paddles, keeping your bottom warmer in bone-chilling conditions.

The foam seat can also be used as a stadium seat or kneeling pad.

Advanced Elements Folding Anchor System

3) Advanced Elements Folding Anchor System – $33.95
The 3 lb. Anchor System is a unique folding/locking 4-fluke design. It is great for use with kayaks and canoes, and holds well on most types of bottoms – from sand to rock. The galvanized anchor has a sliding collar which keeps the flukes drawn up tight against the shank when stowed, and then drops to lock the flukes open when deployed. It is easy to remove the anchor from the water – simply pull and stow!

Advanced Elements Fishing Accessory Frame

4) Accessory Frame Mounting System from Advanced Elements – $59.95
Retrofit your inflatable or hardshell kayak for fishing, video and photography with an accessory bar! Once installed, add any aftermarket 1” rail-mounts, and customize most kayaks with rod holders, a fish finder, camcorder, cameras or other equipment. The Accessory Frame bar consists of three pieces of anodized aluminum with push-pin construction; once in position, the push pins keep the bar from sliding out, but allow for easy dismantling.

Blackfoot fishing cooler

Carry your fishing supplies or picnic lunch while out on the water! The Blackfoot Fishing Cooler is perfect for carrying supplies or perishables while out kayaking.

Sized to fit slim to super-sized torsos, with cool open sides and adjustable front buckle straps that can be loosened for quick ventilation. Five pockets for holding all sorts of fishing gear – 2 big tackle box cargo pockets with 2 interior pouches, plus an exterior mesh pocket. A cross between a fishing vest and a PFD, but great for canoeing, kayaking and sailing!

Stohlquist Fisherman PFD

A comfortable, high-backed fishing vest with all the bells and whistles! As a fishing vest, the Fisherman provides a multitude of storage options for the ultimate in “gear management.” Dual front-mounted tool pouch pockets act as fold down work surfaces while each have protective EVA-stiffened outer shells to protect pocket contents. Available in two colors and three sizes – including a “universal fit” option.

Advanced Elements StraitEdge Angler

8) Advanced Elements StraitEdge Angler Inflatable Kayak – $649
Designed with the needs of the kayak angler in mind, the StraitEdge Angler’s wide beam provides maximum stability when bringing in big catches. A revolutionary removable mounting rail offers a variety of options – by adding aftermarket rail-mounts, you can customize the kayak with rod holders, a fish finder or other equipment. Key features include the new high-back lumbar seat as standard (this has two rod holders on the back), stainless steel d-rings for drift anchor and stringer attachments, paddle holders and bungee deck lacing for abundant gear storage.  Coupled with the standard StraitEdge features of self-bailing plugs and aluminum bow and stern ribs – you’ve got an inflatable fishing kayak built for comfort, durability and portability.
